The Boulder County District Attorney’s Office has debuted its new public data dashboard.

The Boulder County District Attorney’s Office will be one of eight Colorado jurisdictions to partner with Prosecutor Performance Indicators on an online dashboard that provides the public with case data and information.

“Community safety is our top priority. As part of that commitment, community members should be able to trust in our justice system. By being transparent and sharing data through this dashboard, the public can view the data and facts for themselves,” Boulder County District Attorney Michael Dougherty said in a statement. “This dashboard will also allow us to enhance public safety, identify opportunities to address disparities, build trust in our office, and improve the justice system for all of our community members.”

The dashboard is one of the steps the office took in the wake of a study that found that Black and Hispanic people were more likely to be charged, convicted and incarcerated than white people in Boulder County and that people experiencing homelessness made up a disproportionate amount of cases.

The dashboard, which can be found at, includes statistics on sentencing, charging, diversion cases and defendant characteristics.

“The move to create prosecutorial data dashboards was sparked by public demand for greater accountability and impartiality, along with a focus on community well-being and fairness,” Dr. Don Stemen, Loyola University Chicago professor and co-manager of the Prosecutorial Performance Indicators Project, said in a statement. “Increasingly, prosecutors are expected to take proactive, engaged responses to community problems, reduce disparities in justice outcomes, build greater trust through community engagement, and increase prosecutorial transparency and accountability. This requires robust data-driven prosecutorial work.”

The Boulder County District Attorney’s Office will also host two public meetings about the dashboard and other reform steps the office has taken.

The meetings will be from noon to 1 p.m. on Friday and Sept. 30. The presentations will be virtual, and attendees can register at
